Question about Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

Some JPEGs won't display on PC

My daughter has taken a lot of pictures, they are stored on a Sandisk 1.0Gb SD card.
However when we connect the card to a PC using a USB multi card reader some of the pictures won't display..
To be specific -
There are currently a total of 96 files on the drive. (There are a handful of AVI video clips too).
When listed in chronological order, the first 73 are ok. The next 22 can't be processed. The last one is ok again.
I've just noticed that doing a DIR command, the last file is listed amongst the first 73.. ie as they are listed directly from the FAT index (apologies if not using the right terms here..) we actually get the first 74 files ok then the remainder apparently corrupt or whatever..
This happens on various PCs - all Win XP.
Anyone seen anything like this?

From indications based on your post/description, it would appear that some portion of the Sandisk 1.0Gb SD card may be problematic. Problems like these are often due to the card being nearly full or partial error in the recording media.

It would be best to format the said card using your PC and then use a disk utility such as "Scandisk" or Norton's "Disk Doctor" to check for errors before using again.

There are other programs that formats USB flash drives and memorycards; two are HP Drive Key Boot Utility, Partition Magic.

Since this of course would delete all files stored, you must copy all that can be copied. If you would want to try and retrieve the missing images, you need to use a file recovery program such as GetDataBack or do a Google for freeware versions.

After formatting the card and checking for errors, it would be best to re-format it again this time using the camera itself.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information./

Good luck and kind regards.

My camera is displaying 1251 pictures but I can only retrieve 15 out of them.Please help what should I do to retrieve all of them.

Because your camera has a SD (or MMC) card, you can take off the memory card and put it in a cardreader. Take care when you connect the card reader to a computer (PC, laptop, notebook or MAC) the computer could answer the card is dammaged and should be formatted. DON'T format the card. If you cant read the files with your browser, try to get a recovery program. There are lots of recovery programes around. Ontrack EasyRecovery Pro and Sandisk Rescue Pro are some examples. (they are not for free) But perhaps you can find a freeware version or a trial version. Success

My samsung digimax s500 seems to be stuck on. I can't turn it off. If I open the battery door will I lose the pictures on the SD card?

No . The pictures that are stored on the SD card can be downloaded on to the PC as the images are stored on to the card and will not be deleted unless you do with the camera menu or the PC.
Once the SD card is taken out remove the battery and tryt o tap lightly on the camera with the hood down. It might release any jamming . repeat with the battery put in , with the power ON.
If not contact Samsung service.

I turn on my camera and it states "memory card error", and I don't want to lose my pictures I have stored on it. Is there a way to recover the pics without reformatting and deleting the pics?

Have you tried connecting the SD card to the PC?
Make sure you can do that, Also, After you transfer them off, Make sure the slot the SD card fits into isn't dusty, and, If it still doesn't function, Re-Format the card after you've taken the images off.

Hi there.
Yes you can put a few pictures on the SD card, you can transfer pictures back and forward while the camera is connected to the PC or you can transfer them via a card reader.

Sorry to say but if your PC can't read the card then pictures are 99% lost.
Unlike conventional hard disk drives there is now way to rescue information from flash media.

SD card

Once connected to your PC you can copy virtually any file to the SD card and transport it home. However, in doing so you do risk the possibility that the camera may not be able to properly display the existing images on its LCD screen. The files won't be damaged, so they can be manually copied to the PC afterwards. In a similar situation, .JPG images you obtain from other sources can be coped to the SD card for temporary storage, but the camera may not display them properly. In any of the above cases when a problem is experienced, manually copy the files to te PC anf reformat the SD card IN THE CAMERA.
